Spring Frills Ruffled Cuffs Knitting Pattern
Beads or mini-bobbles, lace, ruffles and ribs! How could you go wrong? Add a touch of spring to your winter wardrobe with these whimsical cuffs. Not only are they fun to knit and wear, but they are a quick and economical project too, requiring less than 50 gm of fingering weight sock yarn (sample used 36 gm). This is a great pattern to help use up some of your sock yarn stash while increasing your inventory of hand knit items for gifting.
This pattern was originally published in the free newsletter from My Sister Knits in April of 2009. It is now available for purchase with the addition of a chart for the lace ruffle and a bonus section on how you can use the remainder of your 100 gm ball of sock yarn to make a matching cowl for a smashing gift set!
